Default Hello Miataturbo.net



Attached is a picture of my recently purchased 95' Miata. This thing is leaking from about every spot it possibly could. I look forward to taking this baby apart and putting it back together without any extra parts.

If you take it all apart and put it back together and don't have some parts left over (stock rods mostly) you will have failed us.

Also acceptable to have left over: ECU, injectors, exhaust manifold, etc.

The bad news is, they're almost years old, and they leak. The good news is, they're fairly easy to work on. Even better, all of the most common problems are well documented, so you know what to look for and what parts to get.

It's probably the easiest engine to work on since the Ford 289. As long as you have a decent set of tools you'll be fine.
